OUTDOOR SERVICES AT MUNGER: 9 AM & 11 AM

For the foreseeable future, Sunday worship services will be held outdoors in our parking lot at 9:00 and 11:00 AM, rain or shine*.

*Read below for inclement weather plan.

WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW

  • Services are in the main Munger parking lot under the blue sky.
  • Bring your own camp chair or blanket.
  • Services are 60 minutes long.
  • Bathrooms will be open inside if you need them, but otherwise everything will take place outside.
  • Dress casually.
  • By now, you know the Dallas County Covid rules, and they apply at church, too: keep at least 6 ft apart from others at all times and wear a mask when you cannot maintain that amount of distance. We’ll have masks available for anyone who needs one.
  • The nice thing about being outside is that you can position yourself as far away from others as you need—take advantage of the space. 6ft apart is the minimum, right?
  • Please please please respect the space of others and don’t be that guy or gal who puts a chair down right next to another family!


WHAT ABOUT INCLEMENT WEATHER?

We are going to meet outside every Sunday at 9 & 11, rain or shine. BUT, on days with inclement weather, we will do a shortened service of only 30 minutes. So, grab your rain gear, pack a blanket, bring a thermos of coffee, and—as it says in 2 Hezekiah, “just suck it up.”

Seriously, use the cold or rain as an excuse to break out all your winter gear AND an opportunity to tell your kids it builds character. They’ll thank you for it.


WHAT ABOUT KIDS?

Each week, during the 9am service, we offer outdoor childcare for ages 1-preK in a safe, enclosed, loving environment. Registration is required and a registration link is sent via email each week.

To sign up for our email list please contact Denisa Odegaard @ denisao@mungerplace.org
With questions about childcare please contact Amanda Pedigo @ pedigoa@mungerplace.org


WHAT ABOUT ONLINE?

For folks who cannot attend in person, we pre-record an entire worship service every week and post it online every Sunday at 9:30 AM. The sermon is also available, via the Munger website and podcast platform, 6 AM on Sunday.

Please do NOT feel pressure to attend an outdoor service if it not wise for your household to do so for whatever reason; take advantage of the prerecorded online service instead.


WHEN WILL WE MOVE INDOORS?

Who knows?


WHAT ABOUT COFFEE?

At this point, it’s BYOC and BYOD (doughnuts).

Actually, it’s pretty much BYOeverything.


SHOULD I ATTEND IF I'M SICK OR THINK I COULD BE SICK?

If you don’t know the answer to that one by now, we have some magic beans to sell you for a great price.

SONG LYRICS

I LOVE YOU LORD

I love You, Lord
And I lift my voice
To worship You
O my soul, rejoice!

Take joy, My King, in what You hear,
Let it be a sweet, sweet sound
In Your ear.

ALL CREATURES OF OUR GOD AND KING

All creatures of our God and King
Lift up your voice and with us sing
Oh Praise Him, Alleluia
Thou burning sun with golden beam
Thou silver moon with softer gleam
Oh Praise Him, Oh Praise Him
Alleluia! Alleluia! Alleluia!

Thou rushing wind that are so strong
Ye clouds that sail in heav’n along
Oh Praise Him, Alleluia
Thou rising moon in praise rejoice
Ye lights of evening find a voice
Oh Praise Him, Oh Praise Him
Oh Praise Him, Oh Praise Him
Alleluia! Alleluia! Alleluia!

Let all things their creator bless
And worship Him in humbleness
Oh Praise Him, Alleluia
Praise, Praise the Father
Praise the Son
And praise the Spirit three one
Oh Praise Him, Oh Praise Him
Alleluia! Alleluia! Alleluia!

KING OF MY HEART

Let the King of my heart
Be the mountain where I run
The fountain I drink from
Oh, He is my song.
Let the King of my heart
Be the shadow where I hide
The ransom for my life Oh,
He is my song.

You are good, good, oh
You are good, good, oh
You are good, good, oh
You are good, good, oh

Let the King of my heart
Be the wind inside my sails
The anchor in the waves
Oh, He is my song.
Let the King of my heart
Be the fire inside my veins
The echo of my days Oh,
He is my song.

You’re never gonna let,
never gonna let me down
You’re never gonna let,
never gonna let me down

When the night is holding on to me
God is holding on

IT IS WELL WITH MY SOUL

When peace like a river
attendeth my way,
When sorrows like sea billows roll,
Whatever my lot,
Thou hast taught me to say,
"It is well, it is well with my soul."

It is well, (It is well,)
With my soul, (With my soul,)
It is well, it is well with my soul.

Though Satan should buffet,
though trials should come
Let this blest assurance control
That Christ has regarded
my helpless estate
And has shed His own blood for my soul

My sin O, the bliss
of this glorious thought
My sin not in part but the whole
Is nailed to the cross
and I bear it no more
Praise the Lord, praise the Lord,
O my soul

And, Lord haste the day
when the faith shall be sight
The clouds be rolled back as a scroll
The trump shall resound
and the Lord shall descend
Even so it is well with my soul

SERMON NOTES

ACTS

3 Now Peter and John were going up to the temple at the hour of prayer, the ninth hour. 2 And a man lame from birth was being carried, whom they laid daily at the gate of the temple that is called the Beautiful Gate to ask alms of those entering the temple. 3 Seeing Peter and John about to go into the temple, he asked to receive alms. 4 And Peter directed his gaze at him, as did John, and said, “Look at us.” 5 And he fixed his attention on them, expecting to receive something from them. 6 But Peter said, “I have no silver and gold, but what I do have I give to you. In the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth, rise up and walk!” 7 And he took him by the right hand and raised him up, and immediately his feet and ankles were made strong. 8 And leaping up, he stood and began to walk, and entered the temple with them, walking and leaping and praising God. 9 And all the people saw him walking and praising God, 10 and recognized him as the one who sat at the Beautiful Gate of the temple, asking for alms. And they were filled with wonder and amazement at what had happened to him.

11 While he clung to Peter and John, all the people, utterly astounded, ran together to them in the portico called Solomon’s.

4 And as they were speaking to the people, the priests and the captain of the temple and the Sadducees came upon them, 2 greatly annoyed because they were teaching the people and proclaiming in Jesus the resurrection from the dead. 3 And they arrested them and put them in custody until the next day, for it was already evening. 4 But many of those who had heard the word believed, and the number of the men came to about five thousand.

13 Now when they saw the boldness of Peter and John, and perceived that they were uneducated, common men, they were astonished. And they recognized that they had been with Jesus. 14 But seeing the man who was healed standing beside them, they had nothing to say in opposition.

18 So they called them and charged them not to speak or teach at all in the name of Jesus. 19 But Peter and John answered them, “Whether it is right in the sight of God to listen to you rather than to God, you must judge, 20 for we cannot but speak of what we have seen and heard.” 21 And when they had further threatened them, they let them go, finding no way to punish them, because of the people, for all were praising God for what had happened. 22 For the man on whom this sign of healing was performed was more than forty years old.

23 When they were released, they went to their friends and reported what the chief priests and the elders had said to them.

29 And now, Lord, look upon their threats and grant to your servants to continue to speak your word with all boldness, 30 while you stretch out your hand to heal, and signs and wonders are performed through the name of your holy servant Jesus.” 31 And when they had prayed, the place in which they were gathered together was shaken, and they were all filled with the Holy Spirit and continued to speak the word of God with boldness.
